US FDA Class I UDI Submission Deadline

UDI Product Data is now due for specific scenarios (Enforced as of December 8, 2022)

Class I and Unclassified medical devices that are required to be labeled with a UDI code, must submit product data to the FDA GUDID now as the enforcement date began December 8, 2022.

Note that the FDA has provided a Final Guidance outlining exceptions for “Consumer Health Products,” i.e., certain Class I devices that are 510(k) Exempt and only sold OTC directly to consumers. (Guidance finalized on July 22, 2022, previous enforcement date for UDI submissions was September 24, 2022.)
